Astronauts in the making!

As part of our new writing focus, we have been excited to watch an advert from the European Space Agency this week.  The Agency was appealing for astronaut candidates for their new space mission – we decided to apply!

We thought carefully about the skills and qualities we had that would make us a successful astronaut – we had lots!.

On Wednesday, we had an interview selection process in class – see attached photo. We interviewed potential astronauts (our friends) and asked them some probing questions about their skills and qualities. Luckily – we all got the job! 

Next week, we will be launching into space and writing a newspaper report to reflect our journey!

Also this week, we have been celebrating Diwali. We created our own artwork to show how we individually interpreted light. We used brightly coloured paints to reflect brightness, joy and positivity. Take a look at our Gallery of artwork. I think you will agree they look wonderful.

There will be some new challenges set on Sumdog this week, so enjoy the games and test your skills.

Don’t forget to watch our School Harvest Festival on Tapestry this week. It is just lovely.
